Probably also cos you dropped off my friends list... re-added... I wish Microsoft would add more friends slots...
Yeah, me too...there's a lot of people that I still like to compare scores and stuff with even if I don't actually play online with them too often. And the more the merrier where things like Game Room and sending out challenges are concerned. Hopefully the cap on how may friends you can have will be lifted at some point.

From what I gather, the original 100 limit was due to the original Xbox Live compatibility. Now that's gone re Live support (Halo 2 switched off) then maybe it will increase it to 200 or something...

I have done exactly what I promised myself not to do. I said I would buy anything on Games Room that I already own on XBLA. But Time Pilot dragged me in. For some reason I am struggling to get over 60k (when I usually average around 90k on the xbla one), but no doubt that is just lack of practice.

Have we had a Time Pilot challenge that I have missed?

Spooky ran a 2 minute Time Pilot challenge that was challenging! We must be due to start another! If I get chance I'll set one up this evening unless anyone else gets there first.

Is this two minute again or until you lose all your lives? Couldn't quite see from the challenge...

Ahh well, I was leading for a few hours at least! I dread to think what your score is Toxie.

I've improved a lot since the last challenge, and I'm pleased with my effort, but I'm away this weekend so that'll be all she wrote.

Suppose I'd better check out the scores and buy the game then... sounds like it's going to be hard though...

I have just had a few tries at the two minute challenge. It is me, or is the timer not displayed? (... no timer in a timed game? Give me a break)

Anyway, I realised some of you were not in my friends list, so I added you to mine. :)

Those customizable challenges are great fun and definitely add tremendous value to our beloved arcade games!

Yeah, you have to guess the time. One freaking bullet keeps doing for me every time, or I might have the lead by now...

It's a bit of a pain not being able to see the time, but if you think of it as that you've got just enough time to do the first 2 time zones, and a few seconds of the third one, then you should be OK.

BTW, I think my friend list is full at the mo, but I'll add you on when I can. :)
